The 100-Yard War: Inside the 100-Year-Old Michigan-Ohio State Football Rivalryby Greg Emmanuel, Emmanuel
ESPN called it the number one sports rivalry of the century. It transcends the years, the standings, and all other distractions. And thanks to the countless remarkable football games between Michigan and Ohio Stateand hundreds of thousands of devoted alumni and followersthe rivalry is now an enormous cultural event. The 100-Yard War showcases two great football teams who want nothing more than to beat each other, celebrating their storied history and going behind the scenes with the players and the fans to reveal the bitterness, the passion, and the pride surrounding the Game.
"Emmanuel does a marvelous job of conveying not only the competition between the athletes but the less than ideal game conditions, the spirit of the marching bands and, in particular, the loyalty of classmates and family that go into making this a special competition."
"A rough-and-tumble pop-culture look at the history of this storied game."
